Download PDF for this date

A group of 100 men, women and children, first Saarlander contingent here to return to vote in the plebiscite of January 13, left Chicago by rail today for New York. The second group will leave Christmas Day, while the last will leave January 3.

Approximately 1,000 Saarlanders living in the United States are being given free trips to enable them to vote for Germany in the plebiscite. All who lived in the Saar previous to the assumption of power by the League of Nations Commission are entitled to vote.

Money for the junkets is being raised by private groups, it was said.
